Há dois dias iniciei uma das aventuras mais inimagináveis para alguém com a minha origem. Ela não tem suaves nuanças, mas foi sempre regrada pela mão forte da coragem, do esforço e da abnegação. Minha mãe, a ti sou grato por absolutamente tudo, e nesta caminhada que agora empreendo sozinho, recém começada, pelas altas montanhas do Nepal, eu quero te dizer que criaste um filho forte e sem medos, e que se por obra do destino eu não conseguir completar a minha jornada de 16 dias, pelo inóspito e inenarrável, acredite sempre que tua força reside em mim como o meu maior alimento vital. Aqui dos telhados do mundo, meu brado ecoará. Queira o Inominável que tal esforço seja recompensado com a vitória! Avante, meus camaradas! A estrada está diante de nós! Ela é segura, eu já a provei!
No nosso oitavo dia de trilha tínhamos um único objetivo: chegar ao Everest Basecamp! Saímos super cedo, pois o dia seria longo e desde o início da caminhada vimos muitos helicópteros de resgate sobrevoando a aérea. Por volta das 8am passamos os 5mil metros de altitude e vimos que 9h caminhando nessas condições não seria tarefa das mais fáceis. Além das vistas mais bonitas até então, com uma cadeia de montanhas nos acompanhando durante todo o trajeto, estar acompanhado de amigos fez toda a diferença. Não só pelo apoio, ajuda, risadas, mas também por poder compartilhar o momento da chegada. Foi indescritível e esse momento está guardado pra sempre!
On our 8th day we had only one goal: getting to the Everest Basecamp! We started walking very early because it was a long day. Since the beginning we saw lots of rescue helicopters around the area, due to altitude sickness. Around 8am we reached 5 thousand meters high and realized that walking 9h under those conditions wouldn't be an easy task! Besides the most beautiful views so far, with an impressive mountain range along the way, the presence of our friends was the key factor to overcome all the difficulties. The support, laughs, help and also the group hug after reaching our goal were memorable! We'll never forget these days.
Welcome to Kathmandu! Motorcycles everywhere, delicious food, and only 22 hours of travel from sfo (including a brief layover in China). So psyched to explore the city and hike up to Everest Base Camp #everestbasecamp#ebc#travel#kathmandu#bucketlist
The birthday cake.
Till I'm 25 I remember that I never got any birthday cake. It doesn't matter
After i knew what trekking is
After i knew trekking in Nepal is
I promised to my self ,I'll be there someday.
I read much info about Nepal trekking again and again , Unfortunately I couldn't remembered much. Hahahahaha😅😅 Weak English, Speech less, Lag conversation
I decided to join a Thai's group and we will trek EBC in April 2017.
April, I was born 11th.
This trip is for my 25.
I expected to see Everest mt. on my eyes.
To feel the Himalayas.
First time touching snow. 😅
In the night of April 11th was general.
But April 12th night, I just knew that another guy in our group born on April 12th ,the guy is P'Chon in yellow jacket.
After our guide knew that.
He left for a while and come back with...
A cake. 🎂
A big one birthday cake in Dingboche village. 4410m. high
Surely, It was
The highest birthday cake. 🎂
2017 APR 12
Day 13 (elevation 11,286 ft):
Last night our tea house was a disaster, haha. The power kept going out every 5 seconds, which interrupted our Rummy marathon, but the food was amazing, so what can you do.
The trek from Pangboche to Namche was surprisingly difficult. I forgot how much the trail went up and down, up and down, for thousands of feetat a time. I'd say this leg was as challenging going down as it was going up! I was blessed to be back in the pine forest of the Himalayas. Being up so high, and looking down at the river and the waterfalls, wow. Idk what I enjoy more, being in the clouds, or one with the trees. ▫️
We saw our last views of Ama Dablam and Mt. Everest today (photo 3). I ran into the blind man from Dingboche, he made it to EBC! What an inspiration, I told him he is my hero, wow. Once in Namche, we ate cake, had coffee, and SHOWERED!
Been a epic journey with my dad! But it's also amazing to know that we have helped changed other people's life's with raising money for the Ronald McDonald charity. Big thanks to everyone...Looking forward to getting off the mountain now! #ebc#everestbasecamp#nepal#helpingothers#charity
Busy day on the trail, we’ll lose a lot of them once we break from the main Everest Trail in a couple of days.
These swing bridges are an experience and the views are just incredible.
Big day, I’m off for a sleep before dinner.
It's been one year since our social enterprise @freethinkerco teamed up with a documentary crew and trekked into the exquisitely remote region of Eastern Nepal known as the Mahakulung for our film @carryingeverest .
We are on a mission to put the Kulung people on the world map because this indigenous ethnic group is yet to be officially recognised by the Nepalese government for their ancestral connection to their land and to each other; a relationship that has existed long before successive governments came into power.
Our 35 interviews have been translated from the local dialect into English and the storyboard is taking shape. We're hoping to have a short 15 minute take of the film ready to show by the end of the year! Keep your eyes peeled for a viewing at the studio!
The Kulung are dear to our hearts and this film is a true collaboration of efforts. Thank you for your support.

Hard days hiking, 900m of vertical climb to Namche Bazaar. Last 400m over two gruelling hours.
Was feeling pretty strong until the last hour, my man flu has returned and I’m absolutely buggered.
We’re sitting at 3500m now and are here to two nights, acclimatising walk tomorrow if we feel up to it. Have a small headache, hoping it is dehydration and tiredness.
Having the time of my life though and the food is cracking. Feeling oddly emotional too, bit soft lump.
#ElementzMagnesium has made it to Everest Base Camp and supported some mighty adventurers on the way! 😁Congratulations @rswsugsr!
And thanks for sharing this awesome picture! 😍
Dear adventurers, remember that some extra magnesium in your routine can help you go the extra mile (with fewer to no cramps at the very least!!).

Today is my free and easy day in Kathmandu and i think it is a good day to thank @elementz.magnesium for this little miracle. [...] Two tiny drops of MO on my wrists when i was too tired to go on. A few drops on my knees and my soles before and after my hikes. High spirited friends who made the journey so much bearable. A special friend who left all her divaness in kl and taught me so much without realising (i'm officially your fan now). A whole lot of silent prayers, invisible tears and determination.
Gitulah, hiker2 tegar yang nak beli boleh PM tepi hahahhaha
